She tells him she never wanted to hurt him or his family and is just a friend of Sonny's. Sam leaves his room and tells Jason what Michael offered her. Jason is amused by Michael's cunning. He offers her money to leave town if she still wants it. She tells him that Sonny doesn't want her to leave town and wouldn't be happy if he found out that Jason paid her off to leave town and rejects his offer again. Emily comes to the hospital. Jason fills her in on what Michael has been up to with trying to bribe Sam into leaving town after already faking his own kidnapping to try to get his parents back together. He tells her that he is trying to back off from hanging around Michael too much and asks her to go get an update on Michael's condition. Sonny and Carly talk. Carly doesn't like it when Sonny tells her he doesn't want Courtney around Michael or Morgan. She tells him that will hurt Michael and Morgan not to see their aunt and asks him what he will do if Michael or Morgan do something he doesn't like, and if he will reject them from his life then too. He tells her that won't happen. They agree that they need to put their hurt feelings aside and do what is best for Michael right now. They go back and talk to Michael. Michael starts to grab his stomach and tells them he is hurting real bad. They get the doctor.

Duncan, causing her to remember the night that Luke was dragging Duncan across the floor of Skye's cabin; at the same time, Skye was recalling Tracy's presence at the cabin that evening. Tracy picked a fight with Skye, and Luke sent Tracy away. Skye thought Tracy was suspicious of them. Luke and Skye sent an email to Faith from Duncan's email address. While they waited to see Faith's reaction, Luke gave Skye a padlock and instructed her to go to the Quartermaines' freezer and lock it up so that nobody could get in and find the body stashed there. Tracy watched from a distance as Skye took the lock, and she followed Skye back to the mansion and watched as Skye uncovered the body. Faith responded to the email, asking Duncan where he had been.

Faith let Justus know that Alexis would be representing her regarding the money-laundering charges. Ric and Alexis fought about the case.

Michael's illness caused Jason to remember how sick Michael had been, shortly after being born. Sonny and Carly were concerned and able to be civil to one another as Michael went into surgery to stop the internal bleeding. Emily asked Monica to observe during the surgery to keep everyone updated. As Monica was speaking to Carly in the corridor, an alarm in the O.R. sounded! When Monica returned, she announced that the surgery was successful, but, because Michael had lost so much blood, his blood was not clotting properly. Sonny told Monica that everything possible had to be done. Monica exploded, citing that she was Michael's grandmother, so of course she wanted the best for her grandson and that if Sonny hadn't stolen him like he stole Jason from her and like he steals everything else, perhaps this wouldn't have happened. Further, she spat that he would have been better off raised by the Quartermaines or Jason, rather than two parents who use children as a weapon and decide living arrangements based on who is sleeping with whom or whose life is being threatened on any particular day! Once Michael was moved to ICU, Carly spoke to him while he was unconscious, promising things were going to get better. To Jason, Sonny blamed himself. Sitting with his son, Sonny begged for God's help and promised to put the family back together if Michael survived.
